A refreshing change of pace and practice after leaving big four consulting.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time for less than a year

ProsWork life balance is a reality at Daugherty with in town clients and 40 to 50 hour work weeks.

Their is paid overtime. Paid overtime means that leadership is thoughtful about when and when not to keep people late. It helps regulate the perception that working late creates greater value by actually measuring the value with additional dollars.

Daugherty team members are intelligent, approachable and have a business casual attitude that I find refreshing after the big four ego maniacs and fake-it-till-they-make-it performers. Daugherty team members are diverse from a number of levels including intellectually open to explore a variety of topics and perspectives with open minds.

ConsThe vacation package isn't great but it is a trade off given that work weeks do not exceed 40 to 50 hours.
Bonuses exist but are more of a tip than a bonus. Again, when weighing other benefits this isn't as bad as it may seem.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to build distinct Daugherty solutions to differentiate us from any association with staff augmentation.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Excellent consulting company where you are only limited by your skills and motivation

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe Daugherty Atlanta office provides an environment in which you are only limited by your own motivation. People who are driven to succeed and to help the branch improve itself are those that quickly climb the ladder. Some of the reviews have mentioned that Daugherty is just a staff aug firm with no projects. Nonsense. There are any number of full lifecycle application development or business process improvement projects. Not to mention many ad hoc management consulting projects like organizational effectiveness assessments, BI or Mobility roadmaps, etc.

Also, promotions are very possible. In the last two years alone, there have been at least five promotions to Principal and one promotion to Director. For a small to mid-size branch, that is just fine.

ConsTwo-week starting vacation policy is pretty laughable. This should be negotiable during hiring. No reason for this limitation at all and it promotes the staff aug perception that some seem to have.

Training during normal hours would show an investment in the consultants.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication to the branch VP is fairly syphoned through the Directors. More frequently, the VP should meet with people at other levels to make sure he is getting the full picture.

Involve consultants a bit more in the project placement process. It shows respect - and to not involve them shows a lack of it.

Daugherty in Atlanta is a great place to work

Program/Project Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time

ProsExcellent salary, very good benefits, highly skilled employees, very active management team, growing quickly due to all the above.

Several large accounts in Atlanta that are extremely happy with the Daugherty team. Many new accounts that are small but growing. This means everyone is working locally with no air travel required.

Management is focused on keeping consultants happy and motivated.

ConsIt is easy to get stuck in the same account for longer than you may want. Although this may also be a positive for people that like stability.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe careful of growing to quickly. Continue hiring the very best.
